Expanding Kaiser Lore

One of the most annoying things about fleshing out these World War II inspired factions is that there isn't enough territory in the setting to go around. I mean we've got America, the UK, Germany, France, Japan, etcetera. There are only a handful of habitable worlds,...

Thumbnails Finished

The thumbnails for the Admiral Hipper, Cosmo Messer F2, and the KM-3s missile are finished. A bit rushed but they all look decent enough, especially the F2. Have a look. I also squished the frames a little to give the subjects more screen space. Once again, I think...

More Books

by | Jun 2, 2022 | Books, Journal, Star Wars

I set aside a little every month for a few book purchases, and for this month I picked up another three.

  • Legacy of the Force #1 Betrayal by Aaron Allston
  • Legacy of the Force #2 Bloodlines by Karen Traviss
  • A Throne of Bones by Vox Day

Star Wars, like so many other megacorp IPs, is basically dead, but for me, it only makes the Legends continuity that much more attractive. That’s not to say everything in Legends is good, but Legends is more to me than just a treasure trove of ‘content’ ranging from okay to fantastic. Legends is the eventuality of a beloved franchise being constantly worked on for decades.

That’s worth delving deep into and trying to understand.

As for a Throne of Bones, I started listening to this gem as an audio book over a year ago, but I’m well out of that phase now. I just can’t listen to stories while I’m doing other things and enjoy it anymore. I don’t even enjoy reading stories off of computer screens or tablets unless it’s manga or something similarly slanted toward the artwork.

For novels, I just really want to have the thing in my hands and not glowing, you know?

At some point I’ll start on these and get back to the blog about them.

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
